      Seriously.... why?

      SH is a nice game. Now it is being destroyed once again by short stacks. And are they even profitable? I doubt so.

      The range they are pushing to steal is so wide.... its like I am betting on red or black, I most of the time get a coin flip or I am dominating them. Rarely do I see myself in a situation where I am seriously behind.

      So I know some here play it? FE like half of your game?

      For god sakes stop with it.. go back to FR or something. SSS on SH is idiotic and its getting on my nerves. If I want to gamble I can go into a casino and play roulette.. its pretty annoying to have to gamble vs them every day (don't even dare replying that poker is gambling too, I know it is, but you also understand the point I mean with this :tongue: ) . I'd like to play poker... not lets flip my PP against you high cards or the other way around for 20bb over and over again. Its not fun at all.. I don't care if I win the flip or not and I am not jumping at my PC going.. woooo gambol!

      I just want to play good NL hold-em poker short handed.

      I hope all of them go broke or break even for 100,000,000,000,000 hands for sucking the life out of poker.

      Ok rant over, it had to be said :)

      I think a player good enough to play sss sh profitably shouldn't have much problem playing profitably with a bigstack, so I don't understand either. but if most of them are not profitable I don't get how can they destroy the games.

      Its not about the money in this case. I was just talking about the fun fact.
      2 Small stacks at a SH game sucks, and I experience this more and more now. Sometimes I goto leave the table because they are just so many of them.

      short handed SSS sounds pretty stupid to me. I hate SSS in general really, but wow.
      I can't seem to figure out why people like SSS at all. There's rarely any skill involved, you just push all in with good hole cards.

      I understand now, and agree completly shortstacks are annoying even if they aren't good.

      not really, sss sh shouldn't be profitable without adaptation. and adaptation takes skill.

      The sexy thing about SSS on SH is that there is much more fish that will pay you off than at FR tables and SH regulars have much less experience in playing against ssS (you can guess why the last S is capitalized ;) ) than FR regulars.
